Basic but Make it Jazzy

There's truly nothing like a uniform of perfectly cut denim and a plush knit sweater when the weather starts cooling down. There's no going wrong with a combo that's comprised of two items like this.

Add a jazzy shoe, a statement bag, and some neck bling, and you've got yourself a fail-proof seasonal outfit.

Now about these jeans: they're my absolute favorite pair at the moment. Not only is the quality tangible, but they literally fit like a glove.

I would *highly* recommend investing in a pair.

Jenni Kayne's Perfect Fall Knits

I've got some exciting things to discuss.

One, autumn has officially arrived: cue coziness, red wine, cashmere, and pumpkin spice for the enthusiasts (me, I confess).

And two, as of this month, I became a Jenni Kayne ambassador, which I'm so thrilled about. I've been a fan of the brand for many many years, and I'm really excited to introduce it to you guys if it's not already on your radar.

They make the most amazing elevated basics that feel as luxe as they are comfy, and their quality bar is super high, but their prices are also reasonable. Jenni Kayne is heaven!

I'm wearing two of their fall pieces here:

◦ A sumptuously oversized knit in a beautiful olive color.

◦ A gorge sleeveless sweater dress in camel, probably one of the most bougie shades that comes to mind.

They're both ideal layering pieces as we transition from warm to cool weather, and they'll be perfect once it gets really cold, too.

You can get 20% off Jenni Kayne pieces with my special code: Helene20

Denim Skirt Dame

I've always loved denim skirts. They're incredibly versatile, can be dressed up or down, they transcend seasons and are unfailingly stylish.

While I've owned many iterations of them over the years—in various washes and styles—I had actually never experimented with any below-the-knee lengths. Until now.

This 3x1 calf-length denim skirt in a black wash is literally what my jean dreams are made of. It's ideal for warm NYC summers, seen here paired with linen and kitten heels, and it'll play a starring role in my transitional wardrobe as the weather starts to drop.

Get it here.

Brooklinen Loungewear

Brooklinen loungewear, morgan tank, bleecker short, helene heath

I have something very exciting to share. It's thrilling news because it involves being lazy, which titillates my Taurean senses. One of my favorite linens company, Brooklinen (as seen in my previous post), just launched loungewear, and it's literally everything i've ever aspired to don while sprawling around the house. Who wouldn't dream of unwinding in casual yet luxuriously cozy garb that doesn't feel precious?

Here I am demonstrating how to properly chill in the pieces, wearing the Morgan tank and the Bleecker short, and I can't recommend them enough. In fact, I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the pieces because, well, I simply need them all.

Summer Linen

helene heath, brooklinen, linen robe, linen quilt

We're not huge on AC in our household, which means that our heavy duvet isn't the most welcomed sheet on the bed during the summer. Yet up until this year, we never had the luxury of a lighter blanket to replace it with once the weather warmed up, and most nights between June and September would turn into body temperature battles where the heat never failed to claim victory over the comforter. It habitually ended up in a rejected ball at our feet.

Northeast problems, amiright?

This recurring summertime issue had to be remedied, and I decided that this was going to be the year. A lighter bedspread didn't just feel like it would be more seasonally-appropriate, I also envisioned an aesthetic upgrade in the form of an airier, breezier, all-around better fitting post-solstice bedroom look. Spoiler alert: I wasn't wrong.

I found perfection in this linen quilt by Brooklinen, which sits perfectly above our top sheet, and provides just the right type of blanket coverage one might need when the outdoors heat up. The kicker? Brooklinen also made this impeccably crisp and cozy linen robe that I've been romping around the apartment in nonstop. To be honest, I might even wear it as dress at some point.

Bonus: got a lil perk for you guys too! You can get 10% off your Brooklinen order of over $50 with code helene10. I know their sheets are amazing, but I very strongly recommend this linen quilt and robe.
